Jazeera Airways, the largest airline serving the Middle East out of Kuwait, in collaboration with the Cancer Awareness National Campaign (CAN), recently hosted a breast cancer awareness lecture for its employees as part of its month long activities to spread awareness on breast cancer. Dr. Amani Hussein, Oncologist from the Ministry of Health, shared her insights on the cancer, including the importance of its prevention as well as early detection.

CAN is sponsored by His Highness the Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah , and the aim of this campaign is to organize regular lectures and public events to improve the understanding of cancer and provide preventive techniques and measures to the public. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, Jazeera Airways aimed to raise awareness about the seriousness of the condition, through the help of CAN.

In support of this initiative, Dr. Hussein commanded Jazeera Airways for their efforts and time and called on the employees to conduct annual mammography tests. "Early detection of breast cancer helps increase cure rate by 90%, avoids mastectomy, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, as well as psychological and organic trauma," explained Dr. Hussein.

Dr. Barakat, VP Marketing and Product at Jazeera Airways claimed that Jazeera Airways feels that the event is a great opportunity to help spread awareness to its employees, who will in turn extend their knowledge to the public.

"We are grateful to partner with CAN as they show their support for continuous cancer awareness in Kuwait. We sincerely thank Dr. Amani Hussein for her informative presentation that allowed Jazeera employees to take this matter more seriously and to provide them with easy ways to help detect the disease at earlier stages as well as overcome it at later stages. The enthusiastic feedback from our employees determined the success of the event." Dr. Barakat added.
